Acclaimed author Andrea Wulf will share the story of The Brother Gardeners, tracing the history of the English garden from its start among a band of rivals and friends who traveled the known and unknown world in the early 1700s and brought back plants, ideas, and science. Wulf brings the gardeners and their travels to life through their own words, with beautiful images of the exotic new blooms they collected. Of The Brother Gardeners, the Hartford Courant wrote: “The American seeds and plants thrived in the English soil and climate, and a national obsession was born. Origins and ironies aside, we are all the richer for it, and for Wulf’s book, too.”
